Obligatory Ronda Rousey Hate-Spewing of the Day: “If GSP Wasn’t So Canadian, He’d Be Unknown”

I know this barely constitutes news at this point, but being that anything even hinting at Ronda Rousey seems to be a big hit on this site (mainly so you readers can take a steaming dump on her in the comments section), I am going to set my journalistic integrity — a term I just stumbled across on Wikipedia — aside for the moment and pass along Rousey’s words in regard to another hot topic around here: Canadians. Specifically, how Canadians will love anything that is Canadian because it is Canadian, and how that relates to current welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre.

Rousey recently spoke with The Las Vegas Review Journal and once again went at the champ, who she has been bashing for years now:

Everybody keeps coming up to me and saying, ‘Oh, do you think if you didn’t look such a way, people would like you so much?’ I’m like, ‘Dude, if GSP was butt ugly, you wouldn’t want to know who he is so much.’ I think he lucked out a lot that he’s Canadian. I love Canadians. They are the coolest, nicest, most patriotic people, and they will support their countrymen no matter what, and I think that’s commendable. But if GSP wasn’t really good-looking, and really Canadian, he would be really unknown.

We get it, Ronda. You’re “a Diaz brother trapped in this beautiful body” or whatever. But you’re also starting to sound like a broken record at this point, and if you think building up straw men to deflect criticism from yourself will somehow work, we beg you to reconsider. To our knowledge, St. Pierre never chose to pose nude en route to becoming a champion, although we’d imagine the opportunity was offered to him on more than one occasion. And now you’re going to attack his Canadian-ness, as if that is the main factor behind his popularity? Did you even watch his performance at UFC 154? If you did, you would realize that GSP has become a champion through pure drive and determination, God damn it, not through a constant stream of shit talk and admittedly fantastic armbars.

I could go with the obvious argument here and say that one could just as easily contribute Rousey’s success to the fact that she is American, or Cain Velasquez’s to the fact that he’s psuedo-Mexican, but I’d rather not insult your intelligence with the same kind of straw man argument that Rousey just used. Later in the interview, Rousey went on to attack GSP for being a “point-fighter,” which admittedly has more a little more credibility to it:

I respect Georges St. Pierre as a businessman and an athlete. I don’t have anything against him personally. But he’s not the kind of fighter I like watching. He fights to win matches. He doesn’t fight to defeat his opponents. I lost a lot of judo matches because of points fighters. It was extremely frustrating for me. And when I see that same style being played out in a different sport, it brings out the same reaction in me.

You know, I respect Ronda as a businesswoman and an athlete. I don’t have anything against her personally. But she’s not the kind of fighter I enjoy listening to. She talks to hear her own voice. She doesn’t talk to finish interviews. I’ve lost a lot of time listening to female WMMA fans spew nonsense into my ears because of Ronda Rousey. It was extremely frustrating for me as well. And when I hear that same shit being spewed out in a different setting, it brings out the same reaction in me. So you’ll forgive me, Potato Nation, but I’m really starting to lose interest in the new face of women’s MMA. Anyone agree?

    I am so sick of Rousey at this point, you hit the nail on the head with her trying to deflect criticism. trying to say GSP is only a big name because he is Canadian is idiotic. The guy is the second most dominant champ in the history of the sport, and Rousey is trying to dilute his accomplishments. What a load of crap. Rousey has 6 total fights, and in a division with almost zero depth. I cannot wait for her to lose (it'll happen within the year, I bet) just so she shuts her mouth.

    Rousey's broken record should be 'more , harder, faster' Otherwise, her new found 209 gimmick has worn thin. It used to be at least people she could fight, now? Eh..

    So is she trying to set up another super fight with GSP, i mean he already has Anderson calling him out, and now Rousey?

    Seriously. Chick has hopped over the fence from 'cool outspoken chick you can drink beer, watch a fight, and fuck, while your boys say 'she's awesome' with" straight into "loud bitch that can't go to a bar and not get you in a fight while your boys quit hanging cuz they can't afford more bail, bitch".

    Ah, so now Rhonda wants to sleep with GSP? Doesn't she know that someone else already owns her? She should have read the small print in that contract!

    In my personal GSP nut-hugging opinion, Rhonda is a douche. I now challenge you, Rhonda, to a duel - pistols at dawn! Why won't anybody accept my duel challenges?

    Sounds like somebody has some blue-ovaries or whatever it is when chicks get their panties (rashguard?) in a bunch. And while she is right about Canadians and their predilection for all things Canadian I think the main issue with George St. Pierre is that he keeps beating everyone.
  13. Mr_Misanthropy Says:

    Mon, 01/14/13 - 06:23


    It's because everyone's scared you'll show up in your Cap'n Swingdick costume. How is anyone supposed to stand their ground and aim at that thing?

    blah blah blah and if she wasn't so Julia Stiles looking, maybe she could get asked to pose naked with-out being a standout in sport dominated by men. 'Hot female MMA fighter' is synonymous with 'pretty good looking for 2am at the bar'. This girl has a severe case of diarrhea-of-the-mouth.

    I wonder if saying you lost to point style judo players is anything like saying you lost to point style wrestlers. Doesn't that just mean they are better than you? Or is everyone supposed to go for broke on a submission or pin even though they are already winning?
  19. ChrisH Says:

    Mon, 01/14/13 - 09:22


    I don't get it? Whether you like champs or not, or even top contenders, we all know who they are. GSP could be the ugliest fuck on the planet, but if he was beating some top guys - we'd know who he is.

    I'm getting tired of the loud mouthed douche bags getting title fights already. The fact that Diaz is getting a shot before Johnny Hendricks is a joke. The fact that Rousey has hitched her wagon to the Diaz crew of 209 is sad. Funny she doesn't seem to follow the fighting style of standing infront of her opponent begging them to "Let me bang bro!" We've seen some one dimensional fighters in the UFC before,Palhares taking legs home with him (along with his juice) and Kenzateen etc. Once some other fine looking lady puts a beat down on her and takes that belt away, Rousey will wake up back in the 209 with some pot head working her "ground game" and banging her off into obscurity. Better put that call into Hustler, because once you've been worn out in the 209 Playboy won't be calling anymore.

    If they added the rule that to win a fight in the woman's division you simply have to rip out the other chics tampon string, I would say that this fight is absolutely worthy of being the main event.

    You'd think she would lose all credibility once she loses a couple of times(which is not for long, I bet she gets her first loss this year), but look at the Diaz brothers (Nick more so than Nate) & Chael Sonnen... They get title fights after they lose multiple times, just because they stay in the media.

    Ronda attributed GSP's popularity to the fact that he is Canadian and good-looking (which is debatable). She did not say that he is successful because of any of those factors. And she's right that GSP's point-fighting style is boring as hell to watch. It also won't do him any favors against the finisher Silva.
